Selected as a benchmark for the Beer Judge Certification Program used in all American based beer judgings. Centennial IPA has quickly become the IPA of choice. Pour yourself a pint of this complex flavorful ale and bask in the frothy headís floral bouquet. Relish the immense citrus accents, achieved by the abundance of dry hopping. This aleís sweet, malty undertones balance the hop character with a finish that never turns too bitter.

Poured burnt orange and pretty hazy with a medium head. Very hoppy with a bit if citrus. A pretty strong hoppy taste with a bit of a bitter finish. Thick and only slightly bubbly. This is a very drinkable IPA and would definitely recommend.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy, earthy-orange color; very light khaki head with solid retention and fine-bubbled lacing. Solid, resiny oranges and citrus and a touch of earthy hops in the aroma; hop-forward, chewy stuff. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy oranges and sticky candy sugar and some earthiness underneath; nice resiny hoppiness and a touch of breadiness and orange zest in the finish.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2012 12oz bottle from Warehouse, Cleveland. With my relatively limited experience with Founders, Iíve tended to associate them with dark, winter-oriented brews (e.g. KBS, Curmudgeon, Deca). I was pleasantly surprised to drink this flavorful, exceptionally creamy IPA. Surely an appropriate name, immediately evident in both nose and flavor. Traces of pine are there, but mostly a citrus bomb, really benefiting from the substantial body. Very fine.

TheAlum (6027) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Served on tap Imperial Pint from Galway Tribes (Frankfort, IL). Poured a orange hue with a decent head. Aromas of citrus fruits and flowers. Tastes of hops and small maltiness that really get swallowed up by the hops. Great bitterness, especially in the finish and aftertaste. A very good brew that was was very hoppy, but (at least for myself) not too much. I could definately see others being a bit turned off by the bitterness though.

ChainGangGuy (4451) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 27, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, orangey body with a small, off-white head. Smell: Pale malts set against a backdrop of lemons and pithy grapefruit. Taste: Meager malts and sweetness that jumps right into a pile of citrus. Quite lemony, even a bit citric. Full, sharp hop bitterness. Long, resinous finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Drinkability: A respectable IPA. Itís plenty bitter, so itís got that going for it.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Pours a lightly hazy, glowing tangerine orange color. A small, foamy, off-white head leaves minimal spotting on the glass. The aroma shows big orange hops, some lemons, cream, and light toffee. Similarly, the flavor is very citrusy, with orange, tangerine, and lemon all showing well. The malt base is very light toffee, which helps keep this highly drinkable despite weighing in at a formidable 7.2%. Medium bodied and smooth, this is definitely a solid brew. Not outstanding, but very solid.

Pours a hazy light amber with a small off white head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops, a little bit of the malt comes through as well. Good flavor, but just a little too bitter for me.
